Better Life Appeal

Better Life Appeal, part of the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity to raise money for the All Wales Cystic Fibrosis Unit at Llandough Hospital

Charity Registration No. 1056544

Story

My name is Ellie and I am 10years old. I have decided to climb Pen Y Fan and Snowdon with my mother and uncle to raise money and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.

My Dadi has Cystic Fibrosis and this makes his chest bad and he needs a lot of antibiotics mostly through a line they put in his arm. Sometimes Dadi has to go to the Cystic Fibrosis unit in Llandough Hospital when he's really bad.

I get to go see him all the time and the doctors and nurses are really nice. There are only 7 beds in the unit and sometimes patients have to wait to go there and some patients are in there for a few weeks or a few months.

The Better Life Appeal for Cystic Fibrosis are raising money to build a bigger CF unit - more beds for patients who are bad and they want to make it feel more like home for patients and families who are in there for a long time. 

The team in Llandough are always giving Dadi new things, medications and different equipment which cost a lot of money. They keep Dadi well to carry on doing things with me, Amily and Mami.

I want to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis so they can carry on looking after Dadi and all the other people with Cystic Fibrosis - so if you would like to sponsor me I would be very grateful.

Thank you, Ellie
